currently, just what kawasaki packed in the little frame pack on my lil ke100...however you can pretty much disassemble the whole darn bike with that factory toolkit that shipped out with the bike... i need to get a spares kit together with a pair of tubes, and stuff, but for now i am happy with what kawasaki sent out with the bike...

The problem with most OEM kits is that they are made out of the cheapest material available. I wouldn't rely on those kits as my only means to repair something out in the field.

I carry a "midsize kit" basically. I thought it was a lot, until I saw Gitana's list. The usual necessary sockets and allens, one rear tube and a rimlock, patches, airshots, 2 long, one short tire lever. JB Weld/Quicksteel and radiator stop leak (because of you Tomas, from that Star Trail incident ), basic first aid plus blod clot kit, spare lever, bailing wire, electrical tape, some random nuts and bolts, tire pressure gauge, axle wrenches and a crescent. I got some Wolfman saddlebags this fall and my back loves them! oh yeah, and usually a raincoat if it doesn't get eaten by my rear tire!

kawasaki planned ahead....LOL they gave you some open end wrenches, a spark plug wrench, a spanner for pulling the rear wheel, and then they threw in an adjustable wrench (for when you break the elcheapo open ends ) and a pair of phillips screwdrivers....

Surprisingly, my stuff packs up pretty small. I got one of those tool tubes for my WRR that fits perfectly on the back of my Wolfman rack. All the long stuff and the compressor goes in there. The remainder is in a Woflman Peak tail bag.
